More than 20 states and nearly 40 local jurisdictions increased their minimum wage hourly pay rates on January 1, 2024. The new state laws require that employers pay a new minimum hourly pay rate this year. Employers should consider the new minimum wage rates when setting internal pay rates across all lower level pay categories within an organization. Additionally, temporary employment agencies should consult with their clients on accurate market pay rates with regards to certain labor classifications such as:

  • Medical Receptionists
  • Data Entry
